I usually don't write reviews on shows. A little about me and how I rate: I'm a parent who attempts to find shows that will not only entertain my son (4-yrs), but educate, inspire, or teach him values. I'm not a fan of 'empty' cartoons.

Before having my son watch 'Creative Galaxy', I actually first watched an episode myself. I was impressed and knew right away, not only would he enjoy it; but also, how it would impact him. The show inspires creativity and mildly educates. After watching an episode, he immediately built a house for his alien... using glue, glitter, pipe straws, and crayons. I also like how immediately after the animated show, they show real children making projects based upon the concepts of the preceding show. Hence the name, "Creative Galaxy".

Now, the only caveat would be that I've only seen 2 episodes; I hope the quality and content remain high.
A rare gem in a sea of children's shows!

As parents we love the emphasis on being creative. Craft ideas were a nice addition as well. Interaction with the audience is always a plus on children's programming. Our children - ages 10, 8, and 7 - liked it but didn't love it. Probably would be enjoyed more by younger children.

This is a great Amazon pilot. The plot follows an alien and its assistant as they try to make a library's walls colorful, so that people will be more persuaded to go there. The show's strongest strength is its educational quality. Not only do the two aforementioned main characters interactively introduce the viewer to pointillism, but the show also includes a short segment of real-life kids making their own works of art, further persuading kids to be artistic. The concept of a creative "galaxy" was also pretty cool, and provided cool scenery, which could possibly make it more entertaining for kids.

However, one thing about this Amazon pilot is that it seems to be strongly influenced by "Little Einsteins" -- nearly too influenced for a kids' channel to order a season. But maybe the former could be viewed as visually artistic, while the latter (which I've seen before) is more about music. That difference may be strong enough to keep it as a potential option for a kids' channel. Another thing is that the show could have been a little more explanatory in the interactive parts: for example, when the alien says the word "pointillism," it seems logical to either spell the word out, or have it in big letters showing on the bottom half of the screen.

Overall, despite a resemblance to "Little Einsteins," it has a great concept with great role models.

I didn't love it, but my daughter did. Like all shows designed for the toddler set, it was quite formulaic and deliberately predictable. However, my daughter, who is 4 and is usually beyond a lot of other shows targeted at toddlers really liked this and kept on watching it. She said it was because she like the pictures and seeing how they made the art. I think she also liked the little pink friend who made funny noises. Personally, I think they should give Arty a different space ship.

My 18 month old started watching this when she was 8-9 months old. She loves them! She loves to color and draw while watching them. They are very good in teaching children about art and all the different kinds of art there is out there. I also got really good fun project ideas for my kids to do from the little segments where they show real kids doing art. Really hope they get new ones out soon. Looking forward to them.

My 5 year old loved this and wants more. He especially liked " when they created the library and used paint."
Please make more!

I am a mother of a two year old girl and four year old boy, and I must say they ADORE Creative Galaxy! Before they started watching the show a few months ago, they enjoyed playing with crayons, play dough, and your usually preschool stuff...but now their creativity is through the roof!!!!

When they first started showing interest, I was concerned that they were just going to mimic exactly what was made in the show, but this hasn't been the case. They are so excited to come up with and try something new, and declare their new creation their "masterpiece" (cue adorable 2 year old pronunciation).

I consider myself an artistic person, so it thrills me to see them taking the same interest. I really appreciate the fact they aren't encouraging perfectionism with the art as well...in fact in one of the episodes Arty (the main character) is painting a portrait of a friend who won't stay still. This results in him accidentally painting her eyes and other body parts in the wrong place. Instead of having him start over, they teach him to embrace the painting if he really likes it (and the audience got to learn about Picasso in the process). This is a lesson I learned late in life.

After reading some of the other reviews, I can see some of their points, but I have NEVER come across a children's cartoon that was perfect. I am just thankful that I can turn this on and know that my kids are learning about wholesome things, and not that little girls and boys have coodies. I give it an A+!!

My 4 year old son loves this show and I like it, too! Arty's adventures are enjoyable while teaching art & creativity. We've done several of the crafts from the show, including this one: http://craftivitydesigns.blogspot.com/2015/06/mason-jar-glitter-globe-crafting-with.html

My two year old son adores this cartoon. I love watching him interact with his siblings afterwards. He tries to act out the plots . And has taken on a new interest in all things crafty. Very good show...in my opinion, a mix of Disney and pbs. A good mix : )
